Lots of errors in merge requests – it seems the MR page is failing to fetch data from Gitlab APIs


In the past day or so I’ve experienced a lot of problems with gitlab merge requests, which other colleagues in my company have also seen.

I’m seeing a LOT of “sorry, something went wrong when fetching…” error banners on merge requests. And I’ve also experienced cases when no error is displayed and it looks like I’m OK to merge, but the merge fails for an unspecified reason, but I’m absolutely certain it failed because one of the merge conditions wasn’t met, but the MR does not reflect this. (example: I need to rebase, but there’s no “rebase” button displayed; there are no approvals, but it tells me it’s ready to merge, etc.).

It looks to me like Gitlab merge requests are experiencing major problems. Can someone at gitlab please investigate?
